Portuguese term or phrase:condomínio (see context)
I'm havong trouble with the word "condomínio", meaning the shared costs/duties of all tennants/owners of properties in a block of apartments. In Portugal, people living in such a building often have to pay for the cost of upkeep to the reception area, lifts, stairs, etc. Does anyone know how this is translated? Anything better than "common ownership"? Many thanks.
